Ronald Reagan's Murrieta Horse Property on Sale

The property, once part of a 750-acre ranch Reagan bought in the late 1960s, includes a five-acre, seasonally fed lake, a lakeside house and a regulation-size polo field with two grandstands.

A 30-acre horse property in Murrieta's Tenaja Valley -- formerly part of a ranch owned by late President Ronald Reagan when he was governor -- is for sale for $3.9 million, it was reported today.

The property, once part of a 750-acre ranch Reagan bought in the late 1960s, includes a five-acre, seasonally fed lake, a lakeside house and a regulation-size polo field with two grandstands.

Also on the property are an eight-acre pasture, nine corrals, three wells and a 2,750-square-foot barn with skylights, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The 1,500-square-foot main house, built with stones from the site in 1996, has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Reagan and second-wife Nancy owned the property for more than a decade before selling it. Anne Sturm of Tarbell Realtors is the listing agent.

Was this 1500 sq ft house the one they actually stayed in while they were there? Or is this the caretakers house? I also thought in interviews he gave at "his" ranch he had one in Santa Barbara too. I guess I could see him staying in that small of a home cause when he went to ride that is all he wanted to do. Cool story I didnt know he had a ranch here local as well as SB.

The ranch in Santa Barbara had a house of similar size, guess he didn't like a stupid big house. The home in Murrieta was built in 1996 so would not have been there when the Reagan's owned the property.

The Reagan's purchased the property itself, but never ultimately lived here. The property has been sold a number of times, since the Reagan's owned the land. Stating it is the Reagan Ranch is a bit of an overstatement.
